Church service

Our main church service takes place every Sunday at 11am and we cater for all ages with activities for young people during most Sunday services.  Well behaved dogs are welcome (as long as they can sing in tune). 

The music is led by a worship group and includes contemporary and traditional songs and hymns.  The content is all projected on a screen so following what is going on is straightforward for the newcomer.  Seating is on comfortable chairs and refreshments are served afterwards.   

Disabled access is available and the church sound system includes a loop for the hard of hearing.  Free parking on Sundays is available by kind permission of Sandown Town Council next door at the Broadway Centre (please park on the unpaved area).

Second and fourth Sundays of the month are family communion.

For those who wish to remain socially distanced, there is opportunity to do so.

Online service  

Each week a new online service is available and published on YouTube. A link to this weeks video is shown below.  The online service will often have content which is similar to the church service, plus a selection of worship songs that we have recorded over the past year.  Why not give it a try and see what you think?

If you would like to suggest content for the online service please contact Paul Corbett by email by clicking here.
